a plan to arm one educator in each school. he told a phoenix tv station it's a compromise between two extremes. >> on the one hand you have people proposing that any teacher wants to bring a gun to school. i think that would create more danger than it would solve and i'm opposed to that. you have other people who don't want to do anything as far as defense in the schools and i think we could regret that if there were another incident that might have been prevented. >> surely a big debate about that. under the plan each public school would designate one person to keep the gun in a secure, locked location. it would be a voluntary program. state law would need to be amended before that plan can move forward. >>> customers at starbucks this morning reacting to ceo howard schultz's plan telling workers in the washington, d.c., stores to write the words "come together" on coffee cups. >> "come together." a nice beatles quote there. i think it's kind of a cool idea, but i -- you know, i don't know that the politicians really care. >> i think it means that people are basically tired that
